Much better than the 1st

d0nk3y2010 | May 29, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2

After playing the 1st Borderlands and not liking it very much, I decided to play co-op Borderlands 2 which was a massive improvement to the 1st game. The UI has vastly improved with a mini-map replacing the compass-like navigation from Borderlands 1. The menu system is much easier to use and overall the graphics have been improved and look much nicer. The length of the game is also notable as it is much longer than your average FPS with loads more in it. Overall it is a brilliant FPS with a good story line, lots of interactive characters and it is defiantly a good game to play for co-op as there is so much to do.

Brilliant game from brilliant series

d0nk3y2010 | May 5, 2013 | Review of Fallout: New Vegas DNS

Fallout: New Vegas expands on it's fantastic predecessor with new features that improve the Fallout series. The most promising new features in the game include the new hardcore mode which, as stated, makes the game more realistic and significantly more difficult - great if you want to play the game again but want a different experience. Being able to modify guns and change the way you use them and the ammunition you use is also a new interesting feature meaning you can upgrade your favorite gun to suit your needs whether it be a better sight or a silencer. Overall Fallout: New Vegas is definitely worth purchasing particularly if you enjoyed Fallout 3 or just want to explore the Mojave Wasteland.

Brilliant, turn-based strategy

d0nk3y2010 | April 22, 2013 | Review of Sid Meier's CivilizationĀ® V

Civilization V is the distinguished sequel which has greatly improved over it's predecessor Civilization IV. A major difference between the two is the improved graphics for Civilization V which makes the game even more enjoyable. The game has been changed from Civ IV to improve the combat and the way the world is set out. These major changes include the new hex grid which looks and feels more genuine and the new system which allows only one combat unit per tile which balances out and makes the combat more balanced. The only flaw with this game would be it's long loading times for multiplayer games and the multiplayer system being quite buggy. Apart from this, the game is defiantly worth buying if you would like a game which will entertain you for hours and want you coming back for more.

Dark, gruesome modern shooter

d0nk3y2010 | April 15, 2013 | Review of Spec Ops: The Line dns

Spec Ops: The Line provides a slight change in the FPS genre that we have become accustomed to in Call of Duty and Battlefield games. Instead of focusing primarily on game play, the game takes a unique look at the face of war and how it affects those involved with a tight and gripping story line. The game offers little in new mechanics bar the feature allowing you to allocate specific enemies to your teammates to eliminate. The graphics are very good and help to draw the player into the mysterious story line involving the sandstorms which have taken over Dubai and the army battalion which have seemingly disappeared. The real reason to buy this game is the captivating story line which will be sure to engross you: not the game play or the common mechanics which have been seen in almost every other modern FPS.
